Tutor to help improve 8 year old with writing ( Not for exams!)

Postby Starr » Thu Oct 07, 2021 3:48 pm

I was wondering if anyone knows of a Tutor who can work with my 8 year old son to improve his writing.
He is a bright child but has always resisted writing and reading, unless it is factual. He has an incredible maths brain but his creative writing and comprehension abilities have definitely suffered from the lockdowns away from school and I find it very hard to teach him myself beyond what they give at school.

Does anyone know of someone who could visit our home in SW12 once a week? Alternatively, willing to travel to someone's home nearby if I can juggle it after work.

Many thanks

I would consider a university student or A level student.

Thanks for the recommendation.
I have now found a lovely local student for him once a week to help with writing and also to set him some more challenging maths.
But I think recommendations will be useful to others whose young children might have fallen behind after the lockdowns.
Thank you!
